See Us In Action

See the below for an example of how we use our injection drying system to remove a widespread leak from the inside of a home in just under 6 days drying time. Suffering from a long term washing machine leak, the home owner's engineered oak floor was laid on top of hardwood floorboards with a gap between, allowing the water to spread throughout the whole house.

Below we demonstrate quick and effective graffiti removal. The below example was a residential home in West Yorkshire who suffered some malicious graffiti on their property. We used a combination of chemicals and hot water jet washing with same day turnaround for the home owner who also avoided paying their excess by using Rainbow International Pontefract.
